Description (from the publisher):

Paris is stunning in the summer.

NYPD detective Jacob Kanon is on a tour of Europe's most gorgeous cities. But the sights aren't what draw him—he sees each museum, each cathedral, and each cafe through the eyes of his daughter's killer.

The killing is simply marvelous.

Kanon's daughter, Kimmy, and her boyfriend were murdered while on vacation in Rome. Since then, young couples in Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Stockholm have been found dead. Little connects the murders, other than a postcard to the local newspaper that precedes each new victim.

Wish you were here.

Now Kanon teams up with the Swedish reporter, Dessie Larsson, who has just received a postcard in Stockholm—and they think they know where the next victims will be. With relentless logic and unstoppable action, THE POSTCARD KILLERS may be James Patterson's most vivid and compelling thriller yet.

Author Information (from the publisher):
James Patterson is one of the bestselling writers of all time, with more than 170 million books sold worldwide. He is the author of the top-selling detective series of the past twenty years--the Alex Cross novels, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, both of which were made into hit movies. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the new series of #1 New York Times bestsellers featuring Detective Michael Bennett of the NYPD. He won an Edgar Award, the mystery world's highest honor, for his first novel. He lives in Florida.

James Patterson's lifelong passion for books and reading led him to launch a new Web site, ReadKiddoRead.com, which helps parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians find the very best children's books for their kids.

The premise sounds very promising and, in Patterson's hands, it should be a good story.

James Patterson is one of my favorite authors mostly because I was enchanted with Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, and then became enthralled in the Women's Murder Club books. I'm looking forward to reading this one.

I would absolutely love to win "The Postcard Killers.". I have always listened to audiobooks during my 102 mile commute to the office every day. (Yes, that is only one way!)A great audiobook will always help make my commute alot easier, and if the author is great, (as is James Patterson) it makes my long commute even enjoyable. Thank you so much for taking the time to put together such a great site for all of us to enjoy! You are very much appreciated. :)
